By no means is this a sponsored post. I would LOVE it if it was. But, no. This is just a mom who recently discovered that she should've pulled her head out of the sand eons ago. Not that I had never shopped at TJ Maxx before. I just had never shopped for the LION. And, let me tell you... It may be my first and possibly only stop from now on.
You see all that? It cost $54. TOTAL. No, you didn't read that wrong. That is 2 sweaters, 2 button-down shirts, 2 pairs of jeans, 2 jersey pants, 6 socks, and a pair of shoes. For FIFTY-FOUR dollars! And they are NICE clothes. The sets are Nautica and usually retail at $54 a piece, on clearance at TJ Maxx for $20. Why? I don't have the slightest clue. They're adorable, well-made clothes from everything I can determine. Maybe because they're not blue. But that makes me love them all the more.
Speaking of blue. I'm really darn sick of blue. I understand I have a boy. I think I'm pretty clear on that. But maybe, just maybe, he wants to wear a different color once in awhile. Or at least I want him to wear a different color. It's bad enough that boys' clothing sections are about 1/8 the size of girls', but they also only have blue. Maybe some brown. Maybe some grey. But there's not even red or black most of the time! There is a weird trend of lime green being mixed in, and thank goodness for a touch of orange (my favorite color), but the options are very limited. And I'm not talking about just one store. It's a conspiracy amongst every children's clothing retailer, that we can only ever dress our little men in shades of blue. SICK of it. So I was thrilled at the red and yellow.
Anyway, I just thought I'd share in case anyone else had missed the memo. BE A MAXX-ONISTA, or however they spell their slogan. I know I am.
